A bolo bao is quite possibly the quintessential pastry found in Hong Kong-style bakeries. A staple item to order from these bakeries, it is also known as a "pineapple bun." Despite its name, it doesn't contain any pineapple at all. The name is derived from the appearance of the top crust as it bakes. The ideal bolo bao is light, airy and soft inside, while the crust atop is buttery and crisp. Have it served warm or stuffed with a slab of butter and you'd be enjoying it the way many do back in Hong Kong.
